Description: Escape to Jimmy Buffett's Margaritaville, right in the center of Universal Orlando CityWalk. From a volcano flowing with margaritas to suspended airplanes, Margaritaville is more than a restaurant; it's a state of mind. Margaritaville has everything you need to have a good time: great island-inspired food, four unique bars, live music and two levels of outdoor seating overlooking CityWalk. Chill out with a margarita on the Porch of Indecision or dip your toes in the sand at the Lone Palm Airport.

“Decent”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 18, 2013

Ate here instead of inside Universal and the food was good. We found it was a bit pricey but given the location i guess it was too be expected. Much better food than food found inside Universal.

“Good value”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 18, 2013

Our second visit here and the food still is still very good along with the service. Everyone in the place (including us) orders the volcano nachos. It's $16 but there is a reason: it takes about 4 people to eat it and that's if it's just your appetizer. The drinks are very good as well. On this visit, we actually ordered dessert. They have a variety of small desserts served in glasses that range from red velvet, chocolate, cheesecake, peanut butter, and one other that I cannot recall. They are $5 a pop but designed for two people to share one because they are very rich and sugary. The place has staff walking around on stilts yelling and hollering (part of the atmosphere) and making things out of balloons. A fun place with good food but slightly on the expensive side. The place always has a wait but the staff does a good job of getting you seated quickly and working with large groups.

“Delicious food, friendly service, a little pricy.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 17, 2013

Located at the CityWalk at Universal, this is a great location to stop after playing at the parks. The menu is class Margaritaville of course so many choices. The service was excellent even through the restaurant was very busy. The prices are a little high for both drinks and food but you are at still within the park so that is to be expected.

“Great nachos”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 14, 2013

Came here for dinner last night after a long day of walking at Universal and the nachos hit the spot. The volcano is very cool and the staff is friendly.
